  • Low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) Your risk for getting low blood sugar may be higher if you use BYDUREON BCise with another medicine that can cause low blood sugar, such as a sulfonylurea or insulin. Tell your healthcare provider if you take other diabetes medicines. Talk to your healthcare provider about managing low blood sugar. Signs and symptoms of low blood sugar include dizziness or lightheadedness, sweating, confusion or drowsiness, headache, blurred vision, slurred speech, shakiness, fast heartbeat, anxiety, irritability, mood changes, hunger, weakness, or feeling jittery
  • Kidney problems Tell your healthcare provider if you have or had kidney problems. In people who have kidney problems, diarrhea, nausea, and vomiting may cause a loss of fluids (dehydration), which may cause kidney problems to get worse or kidney failure

Other medicines like BYDUREON BCise may cause severe stomach problems. It is not known if BYDUREON BCise causes or worsens stomach problems
  • Low blood platelet count BYDUREON BCise may cause the number of platelets in your blood to be reduced. When your platelet count is too low, your body cannot form blood clots. You could have serious bleeding that could lead to death. Stop using BYDUREON BCise and call your healthcare provider right away if you have unusual bleeding or bruising
  • Serious allergic reactions Stop using BYDUREON BCise and get medical help right away if you have any symptoms of a serious allergic reaction, including itching, rash, or difficulty breathing
  • Injection-site reactions Serious injection-site reactions, with or without bumps (nodules), have happened in some people who use BYDUREON BCise. Some of these injection-site reactions have required surgery. Call your healthcare provider if you have any symptoms of injection-site reactions, including severe pain, swelling, blisters, an open wound, or a dark scab
  • Gallbladder problems have happened in some people who take BYDUREON or other medicines like it. Tell your healthcare provider right away if you get symptoms of gallbladder problems including pain in the right or middle upper stomach area, nausea and vomiting, fever, or your skin or the white part of your eyes turns yellow

The most common side effects with BYDUREON BCise may include a bump at the injection site and/or nausea. Nausea is most common when you first start using BYDUREON BCise, but decreases over time in most people as their body gets used to the medicine.

Tell your healthcare provider about all of the medicines you take, including prescription and over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements, as taking them with BYDUREON BCise may affect how each medicine works.

Before using BYDUREON BCise, tell your healthcare provider if you are pregnant, nursing, or plan to become pregnant or nurse. BYDUREON BCise may harm your unborn baby.
